Large Format Printers Aid Automated Fertilizer Bagging

With the launch of ITW Norwood’s NGT 8E large format thermal transfer label printer Fertilizer packagers can now print up to 6″ x 8″ ingredient formulations in real time.  This means no more printing of labels to apply to hand bagged products or use of expensive window bags and the labor required to insert formulation ship sheets into the window bag.   Hamer has integrated the NGT 8E into its Model 2090 form, fill and seal machine.   This combination of automated bagging and automated formulation printing allowing fertilizer blenders and packagers to reduce bag cost, bagging labor while improving production quality and quantity.
